by Adams, Michelle A., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 76; 1493081
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant to develop and fund an activities program to help normalize the lives of adolescents in foster care group homes. The program would be offered through Dangerfield Institute of Urban Problems, a non-profit residential group home in a Los Angeles urban community.

The program goals include building the self-esteem and resiliency of the youth and enhancing their overall well-being and development. The program will be based on a token economy system, which will be used for the youth for their participation in the after school activities. The Weingart Foundation was identified as the potential funder of this project.

The actual submission of the grant proposal to the foundation was not a requirement of this project.
